The Vulture Hunt was the crackdown of the Vulture King, a Dornish rebel who defied Iron Throne authority in the Dornish Marches. Lord Sam Tarly played a key role in putting down the rebellion.[1]

In the books

The books elaborate the scope of the rebellion and identity the key combatants. The Vulture King was mainly able to rebel because House Martell, itself in defiance of the Iron Throne, largely ignored the insurrection. Former Hand of the King Orys Baratheon - a veteran of the First Dornish War - led the houses of the Dornish Marches in the crackdown of the rebellion, and was mortally wounded in a duel with one of the rebels.[2]
